No problem, unless you want to run it in full screen or graphics mode.  WIN7
does not fully support DOS programs in full screen mode.  However, there are
a couple of ways around that.  You can run it in a virtual XP machine.  I
have WIN7 Pro, and it is a free download.   

However, there is a simpler method.  There is a program called DOSBox which
is intended to run really old legacy games.  It works perfectly with ITrack,
and makes a much smaller footprint on your machine.


Even though I have the virtual XP machine, I prefer to use the DOSbox
version.  With a little obvious tweaking of the configuration, it will come
up as before.
